Re: Living Land and languages

For my part, I assume that everyone speaks English unless they don't. I've also changed up the Language skill so that every add you have gives you speaking/reading/writing fluency in one non-English Language per add and that having the Linguist Perk doubles that along with giving its usual benefit....

Re: The Kickstarter poll is up

Well for better or worse, I Love the fact than the fans get to influence the Meta Plot. I definitely voted against any Axiom increases, because we felt strongly that the Tribal aspect is one of the things we like about the living land. And we certainly didnt want to increase the tech axiom and make...

Re: Swimming Cyborgs

IMO, the + of the Armor doesn't describe how limiting and heavy it is. That's covered by two things: Its Max Dex and its Fatigue stat. The latter is already part of the drowning rules on p. 135. For the former, I'd instead suggest something like: "When swimming in armor, roll against the lower ...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #2 - Pulp Powers

But I hope you can see why this is confusing to us? You did spend a lot of energy convincing us why cross cosm perks were a bad idea. Consequently I have spent a lot of energy convincing my players of the same. Like a lot of players, they really want cross-cosm perks, but bought into the idea of an...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #1 - One Year Later...

I like what we've seen in Preview #2 as well. The specific martial art example is a little underwhelming only because we don't have the Pan-Pacifica book (which I assume will include far more awesome Ki Powers), but the idea of "these are pulp 'mystery men' rather than four-color 'superheroes' ...

Re: Failed multi targeting test

The trouble comes when you say "I want to attack Thug 1, Thug 2, and Thug 3 with one bullet each," because that's actually a very precise effort. And if those three thugs are standing amid a bunch of innocents or allies, then I absolutely think the penalty is justified. But if you're sayin...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #1 - One Year Later...

I thought Mobius was openly hostile to Israel, if only as a way to garner more Arab support. So why would he avoid Jordan because it was close to Israel?

Re: Orrorsh is an Infection

There is a difference IMO between having some areas that are lower tech than the Axiom, and all areas being lower tech than the Axiom should support. I think in that case, there does need to be some additional explanation. Quoted for truth -- this sums it up perfectly. This is why I'm looking forwa...

Re: Nile Empire Preview #1 - One Year Later...

IMO, it's the intent that matters here. A mask's primary purpose is to disguise you, yes, but more than that it's what lets you step into the role of your alter ego. So if she just bought a gas mask from a war-surplus vendor and put it on, then no, it isn't a "mask." There needs to be some...
